Crossroads Conference Will Feature Challenges to the Park
Joshua Tree National Park will wind down its year-long, 75th Anniversary celebration with a two-day public event starting on December 2, 2011. The Crossroads Conference, featuring presentations by notable subject-matter experts on Joshua Tree National Park, will be held in the auditorium at the University of California, Riverside, Palm Desert Graduate Center and run from 12:30 to 4 pm. The following day, December 3, conference participants will take a guided tour of the park, Coachella Valley's 794,000-acre neighbor to the north. Buses will pick up participants at 9 am at the conference site, as well as at Desert Springs High School, and return to those locations at 2 pm.
Crossroads Conference presentations and field trips are free of charge. For more information call Joshua Tree's 75th Anniversary Coordinator George Land at 760 367-5507 or email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
